While I would easily give Hemovore five stars based on the story and the writing alone, with Joel Leslie’s narration… well this one goes to eleven. He added so much to these characters, if I didn’t know better I would think Jordan Castillo Price wrote it just for him! A truly creative story, Hemovore explores a world where vampires, or V-positives, live amongst the rest of us. The whole story is told from the point-of-view of the main character, Mark Hansen, and let me just say, he is hilarious! I certainly never expected to laugh out loud over a novel like this, but Leslie imbues Mark’s snarky little comments with so much personality! I could just imagine him sitting there telling his tale, and I was completely captivated. There are a host of fantastic characters in Hemovore and Joel Leslie provides creative accents and amazing variety in their voices, he really is a pro. Spectacular audio aside, Hemovore is an astoundingly creative story. Jordan Castillo Price has really put some thought into what modern society would be like if there was an HHV virus and we all lived lived side by side. There are great details from hoagie flavored water (so vampires can still enjoy their favorites) to how a ‘mixed’ couple kiss hello and goodbye. With explanations of what is legally required, to the accepted etiquette accepted of polite society, it’s easy to imagine this world thanks to Price’s thoughtful insight. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed everything I’ve read by Jordan Castillo Price and Hemovore is right up there with the best! This was a truly interesting story and I highly recommend it. An audio copy of the second edition of Hemovore was provided by the author for the purpose of this review.

Mark Hansen is delighted with his job as personal assistant to Jonathan Varga. He is sure his life will be filled with glamor. Instead, he finds that Jonathan does not have a social life. He rarely leaves and does not attend outside events. He refuses all interviews and photographs. One look from Johnathan and Mark will do whatever he wants. He will not drink supermarket blood, only cat’s blood. He enjoys painting his black paintings, which only a vampire can enjoy. Then one small article sets up a change of events that neither could have imagined. Jonathan’s past comes explodes into his present and Mark and Jonathan are fighting for their lives. Hemovore is a re-release. It contains an extra little story at the end which is a delight and sure to please. Vampires are infected with a virus which causes them to change at the DNA level. There are several stages and most do not make it through all the stages. Therefore, Mark lives by the microbial wipes. We are privileged to be exposed to Mark’s thinking and what a mind he has. At times, he makes you laugh and at times, he makes you sad. He is quick witted and more than a match for anything Jonathan throw at him. Mark also learns there is so much more to Jonathan than he thought possible. Hop on the roller coaster and discover, along with Mark what Jonathan’s past h old. You will be delighted, intrigued and enchanted with Hemovore. Another winner for Jordan Castillo Price. She is a master at creating quirky but engaging heroes.

Loved it. So much. I had actually already tried reading this book once, but back then my knowledge of the English language was not extensive enough for me to really enjoy it. I got confused and dropped it. I am so happy however, to have given it another try with this version. It was heartwrenching, so upsetting, but at the same time really beautiful. It's a story about love, hate, forgiveness and acceptance. And above all the simple reassurance that love prevails all. So thanks to the author and her team for giving me the opportunity to read it again ... I'm richer of two lifetimes in return. (What I actually want to say: Yes, I really, really loved it ;) )
